Historical

This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. If it was not for this area, this facility's overall grade would have been much worse. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is frequently a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. This nursing home provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in this area with 63.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home's inspection score exceeded its overall grade as well. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a B. This is a notably better grade than its overall score. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also weigh quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed above average in this area.

Historical

The last area we scored was long-term care, which was this nursing home's weakest area. We gave it an F for this category, which is clearly concerning. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 80 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
